Vladimir Putin inspected the generals

Yesterday, Russian President Vladimir Putin visited the Central Command Center (TsKP) of the General Staff. There, he familiarized himself with the work of the TsKP, listened to the reports of the Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu and the Commander of the Aerospace Defense General Major-General Alexander Golovko about the work of the Rocket Assault Warning System (SPRN), gave the go-ahead to the radar station of the Voronezh- DM ”, located near Armavir of the Krasnodar Territory, on combat duty. The President also talked to the station team and the seamen carrying military service in the Mediterranean Sea through video calling systems.

“The deployment of a radio engineering center in Armavir and the creation of an operational unit of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean Sea will help maintain strategic stability in the world and balance of forces in some of its regions,” said Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu at a meeting with the leadership of the military department. According to Shoigu, the center in Armavir, equipped with a radar station of a new generation of high factory readiness “Voronezh”, meets the most modern requirements of military-space defense. It allows the control of near-Earth space, expands the capabilities of the missile attack warning system in the south-western and southern directions, said the army general.

The Minister, as reported by news agencies, noted that the resumption of the permanent presence of Russian warships in the Mediterranean Sea ensures the protection of national interests "in this currently disturbing region." “The operational task force of the Navy is entrusted with a wide range of tasks to ensure Russia's naval presence in the Mediterranean Sea,” said Sergey Shoigu.
In turn, the commander of a separate radio engineering center, Colonel Vladimir Severov, said that the commissioning of a new radar station in Armavir fully compensated for Russia's refusal to operate the radar station in Gabala (Azerbaijan). In terms of its tactical and technical characteristics, the station is capable of monitoring the missile-prone areas in its area of ​​responsibility, ”said the colonel. In his opinion, this station is capable of detecting both ballistic and aerodynamic targets, as well as space objects. The officer added that the radar in Armavir operates in the decimeter wavelength range, and therefore its accuracy is much higher than that of the stations of the previous generation.

It is interesting that the ceremony of putting the station in Armavir into combat duty took place on the birthday of the founder of the Voronezh-type radar, chief designer of the NPCIAR NPC Sergei Saprykin. Major-General Alexander Golovko, commander of the East Kazakhstan region troops, personally congratulated the birthday party. And Vladimir Putin recalled that in December 2011 of the year, the Voronezh-M radar station (in Lekhtusi, near St. Petersburg. - “NG”) had already been put into service in the Armed Forces, the current station in Armavir is now in line, and promised further equip troops with similar stations. “In general, before 2018, seven more such stations are to be commissioned,” said the president. (According to NG, besides Armavir and St. Petersburg, these radar stations are located near Kaliningrad, in Usolye-Sibirsky near Irkutsk, and will be built in Barnaul, Yeniseisk and the Orenburg region.)

“A modern radar station should become an important link in the missile attack warning system, and seriously enhance the combat potential of the aerospace defense of the Russian Federation in the southern and south-western directions,” the president said.

    The President has a busy schedule ... you will not say anything .... as he said earlier "... I work like in galleys"
    And about "Voronezh near Armavir, it was so beautifully done .... and most importantly quickly. The Ayzers thought that now all Russians are in our trap as much as we want and we will milk from the Gabala station ... we want 15 million dollars." ... we want 300 .... like our business !! ... But here it was not so ... The Russians are driving slowly, but quickly harnessing ... and there are still azer with a nose ... and most importantly, they showed their true colors ..... that they are holding a stone for us behind our backs ..... let's put it mildly ah ... ah ... yayyyy

      In my opinion, they did this on purpose, under US pressure, so that we abandon the lease, and not to take more money from us

    I wonder what the Azerbaijanis will do with the Gabala? Will they lease it to someone, or will they steal it for a colormet?

    Now they have nothing to take from us and nothing to put pressure on - now we ourselves with the Mustache - decimeter.

      Today, on the day of the 214th anniversary of the birth of the great Russian poet Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin, a solemn meeting and concert with the participation of schoolchildren was held in Pushkin Square in Baku.

      According to Vesti.Az, the rally was opened by Tatyana Kerimova, chairman of the Commonwealth of the Peoples of Azerbaijan Republican Society. Further, Vladimir Dorokhin, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Russia to Azerbaijan, congratulated everyone on a significant day.

      “Pushkin’s poetry has such a unique property as the unification of people,” he noted with satisfaction. It helps Russia and Azerbaijan to strengthen cultural ties. He further noted the great interest in Azerbaijan in the study of the Russian language. This is a testament to the spiritual community of our two peoples, ”he emphasized.

      The uniqueness of the attitude to the Russian language in the country, in his opinion, also creates good conditions for studying the Russian language. In conclusion, the ambassador read Pushkin’s poem about the Caucasus.

    Want to do the job well, do it yourself! The simple truth is becoming increasingly clear to Putin that in matters of the country's development, including its defense, we must do everything ourselves, and not rely on a foreign uncle, especially on an uncle from Baku in a cap-airport and with golden teeth in a foul smelling to the mouth!
    Russia has no friends, but only two allies - the army and navy! (WITH)
